ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Seventeen Turkish soldiers have been injured in a bombing being blamed on the PKK.

A military vehicle on patrol in the town of Esendere in Hakkari province, near Turkey’s borders with Iran and Iraq, was hit by an improvised explosive device, the Turkish Armed Forces announced in a statement on Monday. 

Initial reports stated that four of the wounded were in serious condition, but the army later said none of the injuries were serious, according to Hurriyet Daily News. 

ANF News, which has ties to the PKK, reported on Monday that Kurdish guerillas clashed with Turkish forces in the Cukurca area of Hakkari province Sunday evening, adding that the army airlifted a number of casualties from the scene. 

PKK maneuvers in the area were reportedly ongoing on Monday.

According to figures from the International Crisis Group, 2,948 people have been killed in clashes between Turkish security forces and the PKK since the conflict resumed in July 2015. The numbers include 973 members of state forces and 1,352 PKK.

Kurds killing is not new they have been killing turks since the late 80's. They have killed their own , they have destroyed their own towns and villages. Thats all they know is kill, kill, kill. A kurd will marry legally and have 4other wives on the side and have 40 or more children some will go to school, some work to support family most go to mountains and become terrorists and kill, they have killed their siblings to save face (so called honor killing) females have no value family elders marry them off on barter system
